    Can I really photocopy these for use in my classroom?

    Yes. SuperKids grants the limited right to use the worksheets you create for personal use, and to photocopy worksheets for use in classrooms.

    All other rights are reserved. SuperKids does not grant the right to republish the worksheets created by our software, nor do we grant the right to copy the software we created to produce the worksheets. Please contact SuperKids if you have any questions.

    How can I make the font size larger?

    You define the font size of the numbers, both on screen, and on the pages you print. If you wish to change the size, use your browser option settings to select either larger or smaller print.

    How can I spread the problems out more on the page?

    You can adjust how much of the page is used, typically to provide more room between problems. If you wish to change the size, use your browser option settings to select either larger or smaller fonts -- this will also adust the spacing between problems.

    Why do I sometimes get duplicate problems on my worksheets?

    SuperKids' math facts worksheets are created using a random number generator. If the number range you specify in designing the page is small, say 0 to 10 or 20, probability dictates that duplicate problems will be created. You can use this to your advantage when you want to design pages that provide reinforcement or practice for certain number combinations, by specifying a narrow range.

    How can I make worksheets that focus practice on a small range of numbers?

    Many times it is desirable to create drill worksheets that focus on certain numbers, for example, the numbers 0 to 5, or 6 to 12. To create worksheets that focus on these numbers, simply specify minimum and maximum values defining the range.

    How can I make worksheets that focus practice on a single number?

    Sometimes it is desirable to create drill worksheets that focus on use of just a single numbers, for example, creating a multiplication sheet that shows 5 times each of the numbers between 1 and 10. To create worksheets that focus on these numbers, simply identify the specific number you wish to "freeze," rather than defining a range of values.

    What do the instructions mean by "minimum" and "maximum" values?

    These terms define the smallest and largest numbers you want to see included in the problems on the work sheets being created.

    How can I make the numbers on the printed worksheet larger?

    One of the nice features of Web browsers is that they allow users to individually define much of the appearance of the information being presented, both on-screen, and when printed. If you want to change the font style or size, you simply need to adjust the settings on your browser for fonts.

    I've got an idea for something SuperKids could add or change...

    SuperKids' goal is to make these worksheets as useful as possible. If you've got a suggestion - we'd like to hear it! mailto:suggestions@superkids.com

    What do the instructions mean by "decimal" and "integer" numbers?

    All the basic level worksheets here begin with positive integer values, that is, positive whole numbers, and zero. Decimal values in the advanced addition, subtraction, and multiplication worksheets include 2 digits to the right of the decimal place. In the division worksheets, decimal is used to indicate problems that do not have whole number answers -- they can be used to practice calculations where "remainders" occur, or for the calculation of decimal answers.

    Why are there 25 problems on each worksheet?

    The number 25 offers an easy conversion to percentages, for grading purposes.

    Why do I sometimes get a blank or partial worksheet?

    We have received sporadic reports of some browser version + operating system combinations that sometimes have difficulty completely downloading the finished worksheets. Some users report that they can reduce the requency of encountering this problem by limiting the number of problems on a page (where the worksheet creator allows the user to specify) to just 25, rather than 50. Emptying the browser's memory and disk caches may help, as may exiting and relaunching the browser. We are trying to track down the cause of the problem, and offer an effective solution.
